About this show

The real life of a small Irish community collides with the wonder of Tinseltown when a major Hollywood film studio descends on a rural village in County Kerry. Jake and Charlie are two extras on a big-budget movie being filmed in town. Is it just a sniff of glamour, forty quid in your pockets and then back to porridge, or will the effects be longer lasting? In chameleon-like fashion, two actors bring to life over fifteen extraordinary and eccentric characters - from the film's exuberant American starlet to the star-struck locals - in this magical, poignant and very funny play. Winner of London's Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Marie Jones' satirical London/Broadway hit is filled with irresistible charm and, appropriately, has come home to Los Angeles.
